Novel Notetaking Tips

From Gerald at Intercoast Colleges, West Covina, CA

The quality and organization of your notes will likely improve if you prepare for each lecture. Be sure to read the assigned chapters before class.

  • Write an outline template to use when recording notes in class – the outline can be based on chapter headings and subheadings in the book.
  • Write down questions to ask during lecture.
  • Make xeroxed copies of illustrations, on which you may record notes and explanations.
  • Xerox the chapter term list or the book glossary to take to class – then listen for those vocabulary terms during lecture.
